Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Think of this as an opportunity:
If a BOAT-US adjuster comes out to look at the boat, you can quarter them, skin them and tan them, and sell a great article on the pros and cons of different tanning methods to make ersatz-isinglass to cover the new porthole in your boat.
And of course, thank BOAT-US for sending out the prime materials.

You know, the publishers don't get many submissions for tanning articles these days, there's a huge market there.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Have you been in contact with the rammer? Are they willing to help get the insurance company moving? I owned a rental property once that had a water heater rupture and flooded the unit below. Blew the ceiling out. I felt terrible and rode the insurance company hard to assess it and get it fixed ASAP.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Today BoatUS got in touch with my attorney, so we’re now in contact. I’ll update with specifics as negotiations progress.

I actually had an issue with a car accident where a guy would not call the insurance company back. He was clearly at fault, but they would not pay up till they heard his side. He lived at home with his mother and was dodging both my calls and from the insurance companies calls. I finally spoke to his mother and explained that we would have to put out a summons for his appearance in court if he did not return the calls. I heard from his insurance company the next day. I think I scared his mother.
